Gear Up for Wellness

Join us at the Growling Beaver Brevet on September 30, 2023, and help make life better for Canadians living with Parkinson’s by fueling research and raising awareness for Parkinson Canada.

Inspired by Davis and Connie Carpenter Phinney’s “Live Well Today” philosophy, the Growling Beaver Brevet is a social (non-race) ride to celebrate cycling with 250 cyclists riding 40, 60, 100 or 200 km routes through the scenic Beaver Valley at what should be the height of the fall colours.

Your Impact

The Growling Beaver Brevet is a different type of cycling event: It’s as social as it is athletic. It was designed for cyclists by cyclists to be accessible to everyone, so there are four different route options. The routes have been conceived with a mix of tarmac and scenic country gravel roads. In the European "brevet" tradition, every rider carries a “passport” that is authenticated at checkpoints.

The funds raised through the Growling Beaver Brevet are used to support research, provide care, and create resources, news, and events that transform the lives of people touched by Parkinson's.

More than 100,000 Canadians live with Parkinson's, a number expected to increase substantially in the coming years, with 30 Canadians diagnosed each day. At Parkinson Canada, people with Parkinson's are at the centre of everything we do. Parkinson Canada funds critical research, provides information and support, increases awareness and advocates for improved healthcare outcomes for people with Parkinson's across Canada. With the support of our sponsors, partners and the Parkinson's community, we continue to invest in research dedicated to finding a cure and improving the quality of life for all people affected by Parkinson's.
